IOM Report on Breast Cancer Finds Evidence of Possible
According to a report released in December
by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), extensive
scientific research on the environmental factors associated with breast cancer has found a
possible connection between increased risk
for the disease and exposures to benzene,
1,3-butadiene, and ethylene oxide. These
chemicals are found in workplaces, gasoline
fumes, vehicle exhaust and tobacco smoke.
The report could not conclude whether
bisphenol A (BPA), pesticides, ingredients in
cosmetics, dietary supplements and other
chemicals of concern have an impact on a
woman’s risk for breast cancer. The report also suggests a need
for more research on the link between breast cancer and
overnight shift work; chemicals that mutate genes, alter gene expression, or affect hormones; and gene-environment interactions.
Maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, limiting alcohol consumption, and avoiding tobacco and unnecessary medical radiation are a few ways women can reduce their risk of
developing breast cancer, according to the report.

FDA Agrees to Consider BPA Ban
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) reached a settlement on Dec. 7
regarding the occupational and consumer use of bisphenol A
(BPA). In the settlement, FDA agreed to make a decision on banning BPA from food and beverage packaging by March 31, 2012.
BPA is said to be a hormone-disrupting chemical, and, according
to NRDC, is connected to complications in reproduction and an
increase in cancer susceptibility.
NRDC filed a petition in 2008 requesting that FDA ban BPA in
food packaging, food containers, and other items likely to come
in contact with food. NRDC sued the agency in 2010 after FDA
failed to respond to its petition.
Several manufacturers of
baby bottles have removed
BPA from their products, and
numerous retail chains have
discontinued the sale of baby
bottles containing BPA. In
January 2010, FDA published
a web page that provides information about BPA and its use in consumer products.
An NRDC press release on the settlement is available at
www.nrdc.org/media/2011/111207.asp, and the NRDC petition
can be found at http://docs.nrdc.org/health/files/hea_
